      The Johnson Library can now be used by members of the congregation by contacting Heather with the date and time they wish to use it.   When you arrive, call the church office so they can let you in to the library. You, of course, need to wear a mask.  Books can be borrowed or returned using the usual methods.  To borrow, sign a circulation card and place it in the box on the book display area.  Return books by placing them on the book cart.  If you need help finding a book, contact me at rroinos@gmail.com.   I will contact you by e-mail or phone to let you know if we have what you are looking for and when you can pick up the requested book.

      In Pale rider, Laura Spinney tells the story of how the Spanish Flu of 1918 affected a third of the world’s population from the poor immagrants in New York City to President Woodrow Wilson.  She  also shows how it altered global politics and race relations while also spurring innovations in medicine.

      Educated:  A memoir by Tara Westover,.  Tara is the child of survivalist parents in an isolated part of Idaho.  She leaves this harsh life at seventeen and eventually earns a PhD from Cambridge University.   This is her story of how that all happens

      With the library closed, Christian Century is sitting unread.   It has many articles with a Christian slant on the issues of the day such as the pandemic and the protests about the policing of black and brown citizens.  You can access current issues of this journal  by searching the Christian Century site on line.
